Intravenous Nutrient Infusions Q & A
What are the benefits of intravenous nutrient infusion?
Intravenous (IV) nutrient infusion delivers the nutrients you need directly into your bloodstream. This method has two important benefits over oral supplements:
After swallowing an oral supplement, there’s a time lag before the nutrient gets into your bloodstream. It could take several hours for a nutritional supplement to be absorbed, depending on variables such as the health of your digestive tract, whether or not your stomach is full, and how well the tablet or capsule dissolves. By comparison, nutrients get into your bloodstream immediately with an IV infusion.
Amount of nutrient absorbed
Nutritional supplements can encounter a variety of issues that block their absorption. For example, low stomach acid, a deficiency of digestive enzymes, and inflammatory bowel disease inhibit absorption. Bypassing these problems with an IV nutrient infusion ensures you receive the full therapeutic dose.
When might I benefit from IV nutrient infusions?
IV nutrient infusions are a great way to replenish vitamin and nutrient deficiencies so you can feel great and live your best life. You may also benefit from an IV infusion if you feel sluggish or worn out, and you need to boost your metabolism.
When you’re sick, injured, under stress, or you just had surgery, your body uses more nutrients than usual, putting you at risk for a deficiency. Your chances of having a nutrient deficiency are also higher when you’re involved in intense sports activities.
IV nutrition therapy effectively boosts your nutrient levels, which increases your energy and helps you heal more quickly.
IV nutrient infusions are often beneficial for cancer patients. During chemotherapy, you may develop a painful mouth condition that makes it hard to eat.
Additionally, your body needs an unusually large amount of nutrients to fight cancer and to withstand potent treatments.
What nutrients will I receive during my intravenous infusion?
Your infusion may contain any combination of vitamins, minerals, and other substances, depending on your health needs and nutritional deficiencies. The original infusion, the Myers’ cocktail, contains a mixture of magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, and the B vitamins.
Many premixed formulas are available that contain the nutrients needed to target a specific problem or treatment. For example, some help you detoxify while others contain nutrients to fight aging.
